About a month ago I saw the new English remake of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo so I decided to watch the Swedish original (2009) for a comparison of the two films this week. The main question I have to ask (like the original Swedish filmaker Neils Arden Oplev) is why? Why make an almost identical version of a movie 3 years later from the making of the original? Are the characters and premise of the story that intriguing to want to tell it all over again without the subtitles?
